Telecommunications Relay Service? – and most believe there’s not a lot one can do to avoid paying them.
Listen to this x minute podcast as TC2’s Joe Schmidt moderates a discussion with Deb Boehling, a Senior Partner at LB3, and TC2 Project Director Theresa Knutson. Deb and Theresa describe what these nasty fees are, why the service providers can legally tack them on to your bill, and what you can do to fight this mysterious telecom budget buster.
